One epic 800-person dystopian themed party. The clients brief; ‘Blade Runner 2049’. The new CEO wanted to bring together for the first time the whole company for their Christmas party which historically was always departmental. The party was to be held in the Tate Tanks, the perfect venue to compliment the Sci-Fi theme.
My expectations were high but you managed to surpass on all levels. The effort made to transform the space was incredible and was so on point to the theme we wanted to create. All the technology and display was amazing, truly making the event exceptional.
The key to a great themed party is good food and entertainment curated in the most immersive way possible. We recreated the scene of the infamous Blade Runner movie food market using lots of neon lighting, pallet bars, oil drum poseurs and we even sourced a replica of the blue dragon used in the 1982 film. In another tank, a full-screen futuristic cube hung in the middle of room, relaying messages and spectacular visuals.
We had a secret tucked up our sleeve. Our team visited the client’s office before the party to create a very special video. In true dystopian style, we projected the video everywhere, no matter where someone was within the venue the CEO appeared on a screen nearby. Aided by lots of special effects he thanked all the employees for their hard work and ran through someone of the year’s highlights.
An amazing party, it was such a success we couldn’t get the guests to leave! The client was happy, the guests had a great time and they’ve confirmed again for next year, expanding the capacity from 800 to 1200.
